Notice to Parents, Guardians, Pupils, and Teachers
Parents, Guardians, Pupils and Teachers:
Pursuant to Education Code section 35186, you are hereby notified that:
1. There should be sufficient textbooks and instructional materials. That means each
pupil, including English learners, must have a textbook or instructional materials, or both,
to use in class and to take home.
2. School facilities must be clean, safe, and maintained in good repair.
3. There should be no teacher vacancies or misassignments. There should be a teacher
assigned to each class and not a series of substitutes or other temporary teachers. The
teacher should have the proper credential to teach the class, including the certification
required to teach English learners if present.
Teacher vacancy means a position to which a single designated certificated employee
has not been assigned at the beginning of the year for an entire year or, if the position is
for a one-semester course, a position to which a single designated certificated employee
has not been assigned at the beginning of a semester for an entire semester.
Misassignment means the placement of a certificated employee in a teaching or services
position for which the employee does not hold a legally recognized certificate or
credential or the placement of a certificated employee in a teaching or services position
that the employee is not otherwise authorized by statute to hold.
4. Pupils, including English Learners, who have not passed one or both parts of the high
school exit examination by the end of the 12th grade are to be provided the opportunities
to receive intensive instruction and services for up to two consecutive academic years
